Welcome to Downtown Smithfield...

the economic, cultural, and social center of our community.

With its desirable location for mixed-use development, concentration of small businesses, locally owned restaurants, and cultural attractions, Downtown Smithfield has long served as a focal point of local culture and history, establishing it as our community’s principal center of activity. We invite you to explore and consider the opportunities awaiting you and your business in Downtown Smithfield.

Please contact Sarah Edwards for more information.

Please join us in Downtown Smithfield to celebrate the holiday season throughout the month of December!


With an increasing demand for space for the County and Court system, Johnston County Commissioners are in need of room for expansion.  The DSDC is asking that the County Commissioners consider opportunities for the Johnston County Public Safety Center to be built downtown in order to maintain, and possibly increase, the number of jobs in Downtown Smithfield.


In an ongoing effort to improve the appearance of Downtown Smithfield, its buildings and businesses, the DSDC has developed two new grants to encourage further downtown revitalization.  The lighting grant will pay for the installation of timers to control storefront lights, while the awning grant will reimburse up to $2,000 for the purchase and installation of a new awning.
